ATLANTA (WAOK/AP)-The body of singer and actress Whitney Houston arrived back in New Jersey for burial today. According to various media reports including TMZ, actor, producer and philanthropist Tyler Perry flew Whitney’s body back east on his private jet.

Houston’s body was released by the Los Angeles coroner’s office following the autopsy on Sunday. The coroner has not released the official cause of death of the 48 year old entertainer. Houston was found underwater in the bath tub in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton where she was preparing to appear at the pre Grammy party of mentor Clive Davis.

Toxicology tests are being conducted and Los Angeles assistant chief coroner Ed Winter says official results and the cause of death may not be released for several weeks. Here is the latest on the death of Whitney Houston from our  CBS affiliate in Los Angeles

    By Louie Mac, February 12, 2012 at 12:58 amThis was so sad to hear about today. In my opinion, Whitney’s voice in her prime will amrein unmatched. She had awesome range, vocal power, but besides that she had the prettiest tone to her voice (which can’t be taught, either you have it or you don’t). It broke my heart to see the very media that tore her down every chance they could, get on CNN and tell everyone who would listen how iconic she was. People should hear more of that while they’re alive to benefit from it. I pray her mother and daughter find peace today. R.I.P. Whiney Houston =(.
